    Ok great moves, but still situational... you need to get magellan, AND have mausoleum... still I'd not noticed about magellan's retirement ability, thx for the tip, it certainly IS a GA that becomes desireable
    when playing Eleanor, even without mausoleum !

    Behold, the world's only seaside resort to host the annual Polar Bear Plunge competitions. Courtesy of the magical pixie dust which makes all thing possible: volcanic soil.

    Nothing remarkable, just happy to have a (semi) useful Suez Canal and finally a max amenity Huey Teocalli with polders. Just a shame about that one amber tile...

    @Tyroq I rarely conquer cities, but when I do I either calque or transliterate the name of the city into my civ's language--except that one time I was really annoyed with Lautaro and gave his cities passive-aggressive names as I posted earlier in this thread. I also named a city I took "Baesin" ("Betrayal") after the Khmer backstabbed me while playing as Korea once. :D

    @Zaarin I remember I did something like that once as Sumeria, a long time ago, in one of my earliest Civ 6 games. I took several cities in a war that I had no intention of keeping, but planned on trading back to the AI after I sufficiently subdued him. I remember one of them I named "Gilgamesh Was Here" and another "We <3 Gilgabro" Shoulda got a screenshot, but I wasn't thinking about that at the time! :cry:

    Wonder where your Inca got their firm grasp of the English language though. :p

    Yep. That's where Pedro gets his extra adjacency bonuses. It's a Prime feature.

    Btw, is there a way to change the default city names for a civ? Was just looking back at my screenshot and now I'm annoyed by The Hague which should be Den Haag...

    Alexa is the name of Pedro's most loyal assistant.

    Shouldn't Alexa be one of Alexander's assistants?

    Alexander and Pedro II both have assistants named Alexa. There are at least two assistants named Alexa.

    More likely Peter's: the Romanovs of Russia included several Alexanders, Alexis, Alexas or Alexandras.

    In Alexanxder's Macedonia the most common female name that shows up in the records is:
    Cleopatra

    Not only was The Cleopatra the seventh of that name in the Ptolemaic Dynasty, but Alexander's sister (his only full sibling) was also named Cleopatra, married Alexander of Epirus and actually ruled that kingdom when her husband died leaving an under-age heir. I suppose she could have been an assistant to her brother if she'd had the time, but by the time he was marching on Persia she was married and gone.

    I wish we could rename spies: I'd name them all Alexa. :mischief:

    As posted on FB...



    This wouldn't be so unusual except before this flashed up, I just had time to see that Victoria and Gilgamesh had declared a joint war on me.

    I wonder what would have happened if I had accepted her demand?

    Joking aside, is this a known glitch?

    The cunning tactic of the Barbarian Siege dog.
    One feels a need for warriors at this stage.

    And if one let out a Cat Scout dashing out of the city and off into the distance, perhaps that would be enough to lure away the dogs and lift the siege?
